yes, but are they just there to use the computers, get CDs and DVDs, socialize, or are they actually reading/checking out print books?

I can't remember the last time I saw a teenager checking out a book at my library and I'm there several times a week. Strictly there to use the computers and check out DVDs. And even that in small numbers. The majority of patrons are old ladies like me.

That's true at the local library in Vidalia,LA, too.

I'm also one of the old ladies.

Yeah, you got it; they're all just checking out DVDs
